The manual page gives the format of the --include-directories options as


So you have to give the option a list of the directories that will be
included in the download, as well as the URL of the place to start.

The particular command I've used with this option is

    wget --include-directories=/assignments \

But you will likely have to experiment to discover a command that does
exactly what you want -- the manual page is not very clear about the
options that controll which URLs are excluded from downloading.
